Boundary changes since 1820:
- Townsend (now Southport) set off in 1842
- Boothbay Harbor set off in 1889
Note: the 1820 Census lists heads of households only; see the original sheets for a tally of people within a household by age range and gender.
Enumerator: Jesse Page
Note: Some of the pages appear mixed up, with aggregates missing where you would expect them and appearing somewhere in the middle of another town's enumeration.
For best results, check all of the towns that Jesse Page enumerated:
Enumerated total population of Boothbay - 1950 inhabitants
The enumeration of Boothbay appears on Sheets 312-325 [the Boothbay aggregate is at the top of Sheet 312, with Monhegan Island following; then followed by several sheets with Boothbay written in the margin; Sheet 325 is Newcastle with a few names at the bottom with Boothbay in the margin.]
The enumerator's occasional use of phonetic spellings may have affected alphabetization of the list below. Please be sure to check the entire list for the person you're researching.
In addition, this enumerator's name suffixes - "Jr.", "2d", 3d", etc., are hard to tease out; I may have confused a name suffix with a middle initial, since Jesse Page listed heads of households by last name, given name, suffix or middle initial. [In some online indexing of the towns Jesse Page enumerated, people's names are indexed backwards.]
